Chicken Chow Mein
A good Chow Mein comes down to the sauce which is made with soy sauce, oyster sauce, sesame oil, sugar and cornstarch to thicken. Slippery noodles with savory Chow Mein sauce is noodle heaven! Quick and easy!
I want to say that Chow Mein is my favourite noodle-child but I’m worried that I’ve said that in another recipe haha!
Besides the noodles, Chow Mein almost always contains cabbage, bean sprouts and carrots, and then your choice of protein. I’m pretty sure chicken is by far the most popular, but I don’t have any facts or figures to back that up.
•1 lb. chicken breast boneless, skinless
•12 oz. Chow Mein noodles
•2 cups cabbage
•1 large carrot julienned
•1/2 bunch green onions
•2 garlic cloves
Chow Mein Sauce:
•6 Tbsp. oyster sauce
•3 Tbsp. low sodium soy sauce
•3 Tbsp. light sesame oil
•1/2 cup chicken broth
•1 Tbsp. cornstarch
•1 Tbsp. granulated sugar
•Chicken chow mein is probably already one of your favorite Chinese takeout dishes.
And here’s how to do it. Make sure everything is ready to add because once you start cooking you’ll be having plates ready in just over 5 minutes – I told you it was fast!!
In a small mixing bowl, use a whisk to combine oyster sauce, granulated sugar, sesame oil, soy sauce, chicken broth and cornstarch. Set aside.
Cook the noodles according to package instructions, drain, rinse with cold water, and set aside.
Heat a large wok or large sauté pan with olive oil over medium heat. When the oil is hot, add chicken and cook until golden brown. Remove chicken and set aside.
Add carrots, cabbage and pressed garlic and sauté for just a few minutes until veggies are slightly softened and the cabbage is a bit translucent.
Add chicken and noodles back into the pan. Pour sauce over the top and continue cooking all the ingredients together for another 2 minutes.
Garnish with chopped green onions and it is ready to serve. Enjoy!!!
